Too many corporations think about marketing to the 55 million strong Latino Market during Hispanic Heritage month or try on Cinco de Mayo.

However, these companies have put their money where their mouth is for Latino market. We'd like to call them our top "Three Amigos" aka The Three Caballeros 1944
AT&T “Between Two Worlds”
AT&T’s #BetweenTwoWorlds is the Hispanic movement in their expansive social media campaign #TheMobileMovement, which launched earlier this year. The company began the Hispanic operation in July 2014 as an opportunity to connect and engage bicultural Latinos, particularly digital-savvy millennials.
#BetweenTwoWorlds focuses on the lives of young acculturated Hispanics between their teens and mid-30s, who easily identify with both mainstream U.S. culture and their Latino background. Accompanying the #TheMobileMovement is a Tumblr page similarly featuring Spanglish posts. The two hashtags can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Dunkin Donuts “Dunkin' Latino”
As of June 2014, Dunkin’ Donuts launched its Latino Twitter page, looking to cater to the company’s Spanish speakers. Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts also claimed to be the first national coffee retailer to make its website, mobile, and Facebook platforms available in Spanish and English.
With the social media campaign launch, there was a brief sweepstakes. Fans could follow @DunkinLatino and use the hashtag #MiDunkinEsTuDunkin to enter a chance to win a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card for themselves and a friend. The brand is now supporting their digital Hispanic movement with hashtags such as #MiDunkin and #DunkinLatino.

McDonald’s “Me Encanta”
Back in 2011, McDonald’s introduced its Spanish-language Twitter campaign. @MeEncanta is a Spanglish-based account used to interact with fans about promotional deals through music, sports and education.
McDonald’s Latino movement is currently engaging its online audience with its hashtag #MiMomento. The hashtag, however, has not seemed to catch on yet with many of the posts coming from unrelated tweets.

Cam-Pain Anger Management?

Issue

Winner Ted Cruz is continually being attacked by sore loser Donald Trump. Their so called b-romance is quickly evolving into a brawl and its about to intensify. What neither one of these knuckleheads realize is that it's Marco Rubio, who may be the one declaring victory.

We also wonder how The Donald will react if he realizes that he was trumped by Latinos?

It's Up To You, New York

Issue

Start spreading the news, he may be going away... A Democrat N.Y. Congressman has shown what New Yorkers are made of as he introduced a resolution of inquiry forcing a GOP Vote on Trump’s conflicts, ethics violations, and most of all his ties to Russia.

What's Up With That?

Issue

When terrorists in Paris killed 12 people and injured as many, the international media went into overdrive to report this news story non stop... Why is there limited news coverage about the 2,000 feared killed in the deadliest Boko Haram attack in Nigeria?

Divided We Fall

Issue

It has been reported that some are warning more dominos will fall after the UK vote to leave EU. Will they include the OAS, UN, NATO, USA?

Why are exclusion peddlers and haters delighted with headlines of a DIVIDED KINGDOM and DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA?

Good News

Solution

Not everyone feels like jumping in the air following significant markers in our lives. However, there is a lot to celebrate and for those of us who don’t see it, it can sometimes be difficult to create a way forward.

Good news fell slightly last year, but does this mean that more people will fail to go on to have fulfilling lives? No, it doesn’t and it all works out okay in the end.

The Pope Goes To Sweeden

Issue

Pope Francis' visit to Sweeden is not only historic but also remarkable.

The pontiff is marking the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, which is an extremely bold gesture given his Jesuit order was founded to defend the faith against reforms that hold an opinion at odds with what is generally accepted.

GUN Control

Issue

The Second Amendment to the US Constitution concerns the right to bear arms, and has always been a hot-button issue, especially during election season. Gun rights and gun control groups alike have been lobbying Congress for decades to craft legislation in their respective favors. Some say gun control is about how steady one holds their firearm, others say its about limiting access to deadly weapons. What say you?
